Monday’s Munchies: Egg Pancakes For Lunch

Lately, I have been running a little low on energy. I think the weather (-20 C anyone?!) and my busy schedulue has something to do with it. A typical day for me is as follows:

  • 7:20 am – First alarm goes off
  • 7:22 am – Second alarm goes off and I get out of the bed and head to the washroom (yes, 2 extra minutes of sleep is amazing!)
  • 7:22 – 7:50 am – I get ready, turn on the car, make breakfast (nutella sandwich for him and bread and butter for me), put our lunches/snacks into our bags and we are out of the driveway!
  • 9:00 am – 5:00 pm – Work
  • 5:30 – 7:00 pm – I workout, shower, eat a snack. Somedays, I am downtown until 8pm because Nouman works late. When I feel like being lazy (I don’t work out everyday), I come home to do groceries, clean or cook.
  • 8:00 pm – Nouman and I typically get home around this time. Some days, such as last Thursday, we got home around 9pm
  • 8:00 – 11:00 pm – Eat, wash dishes, make/pack lunches, blog, watch TV/unwind
  • I try to be in bed by 11:00pm but this is pretty difficult. By the time I actually go to sleep, it is atleast around midnight.

Anyway, as you can see, my days are pretty busy. I generally make enough food for the week on Sunday or I make an extra dish on Wednesday. Since I don’t eat meat, I sometimes get lazy and can’t be bothered to make enough food for myself for the week. Stupid, I know. I have been lacking protein in my diet so I decided to make a eggs for lunch one day and loved it. I now make this atleast once a week.

You will need:

  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup of fresh spinach (you can use frozen aswell). You can chop these but I don’t bother
  • 1/4 red bell pepper, chopped
  • A few slice of thinly slice onions
  • 1/2 tomato, cut in chunky pieces
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 teaspoon oil
  • 2-3 sliced hot peppers

*If you have any other veggies, you can throw those in aswell; I regularly add a few florets of broccolli. You can add all sorts of crazy to eggs – cheese, sausages, ground meat… anything, really!*

Method:

  • Heat your oil in a skillet/pan
  • Meanwhile, beat the eggs in a bowl
  • Now, add all the ingredients into the bowl with the eggs
  • Pour the egg mixture onto your skillet
  • Cook each side for 3-5 minutes, or until golden brown, on medium heat
  • Voila!

You can either eat this with a fork or in a yummy egg sandwich. I prefer the latter.

Do you have any quick, go-to recipes?
